Alex Murrel is best known as a reality television star on MTV’s Laguna Beach. The aspiring singer is in the news today because police, at the request of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, raided her rented house in the O.C. They believed that her Peruvian boyfriend, Renzo Gamboa, was in the U.S. illegally. A search of the home resulted in a felony drug bust, as police found cocaine which was packaged for sale.
Renzo Gamboa admitted the coke was his, and was arrested for possession of cocaine with intent to sell. Gamboa was transported to county jail and placed on an immigration hold, while Murrel was questioned as a witness, but is not expected to face any charges.
“The immigration people came down and asked us for assistance. They found him at the girlfriend’s house and we assisted them, but we had a new charge to add on because of the cocaine in the house, which was his. We arrested him and booked him on felony charge of possession for sales.”
